Is is possible to tweak Visual Studio 2008 to show more than the 6 default Recent Projects?

I wouldn't call that a tweak though... just a plain simple setting. – fretje Jan 4 '10 at 13:00
I agree with you – Chris_45 Jan 4 '10 at 15:18

Go into Tools -> Options and under Environment/General you have Recent files group box. Second text box (_ items shown in recently used list) controls how many projects you will see. Just put e.g. 10 there.
